You'll need

750 ml (3 cups) pouring cream 200 ml milk 4 very ripe bananas, mashed 10 egg yolks 300 gm caster sugar   Chocolate crumble 125 gm dark chocolate (60% cocoa solids) 75 gm (1/3 cup) caster sugar 35 gm butter, at room temperature 1 egg, lightly beaten 35 gm (¼ cup) plain flour   Chantilly cream 100 ml pouring cream 1 tbsp caster sugar

Method

  • 01
  • Bring cream, milk and banana to the simmer in a saucepan over medium-high heat, then remove and set aside for flavours to infuse (1 hour).
  • 02
  • Meanwhile, for chocolate crumble, preheat oven to 170C. Melt chocolate in a heatproof bowl over a saucepan of simmering water, stirring occasionally, until smooth. Beat sugar and butter in an electric mixer until combined and slightly pale (3-4 minutes). Mix in melted chocolate and egg until combined, then beat in flour and a pinch of salt until a wet dough forms. Spread on a baking tray lined with baking paper and bake until cooked through but not crisp (15-20 minutes). Cool, then process in a food processor until coarse crumbs form. Set aside until required.
  • 03
  • Reduce oven to 140C. Bring milk mixture back to the simmer, then strain through a fine sieve. Whisk yolks and 80gm sugar until thick and pale (2-3 minutes), whisk in milk mixture, then strain through a fine sieve. Divide mixture evenly among six 250ml ramekins and place in a deep roasting pan. Fill with hot water to three-quarters of the way up the sides of the ramekins, cover pan with foil and bake until set with just a slight wobble (40-45 minutes). Carefully remove from pan and cool completely before refrigerating overnight.
  • 04
  • For Chantilly cream, whisk cream with sugar until stiff peaks form (3-4 minutes), then refrigerate until required.
  • 05
  • To serve, sprinkle 1 tbsp of sugar evenly over each brûlée and caramelise surface with a blowtorch; repeat with another tablespoon of sugar until caramelised sugar is dark golden. Scatter with chocolate crumbs and serve with a dollop of Chantilly cream.

Note Begin this recipe a day ahead to set the brûlées.
